Kalaripayattu, the mother of all martial arts and the oldest among this self defence form, represents the true soul of South India. The word is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Khaloori’ meaning ‘battle field’. The rich diversity in arts and a distinct lineage gives Kalaripayattu an inimitable scope in the context of ancient and modern warfare or what they call an art of self defence. The elaborative culture of shifting civilization which we called nomadic evolution is believed to have given birth to this amazing art. This martial art form has survived around 3000 years. The Vedas tell of Lord Indra’s defeat of the demon Vritasura using the marmam technique of Kalari.
To attain the much needed flexibility of the body for Kalaripayattu, it is essential to learn those yoga asanas (stretching) which will provide this state of the body. As of now, none of the other yoga systems contain specific yoga asanas that can provide such a state of the body. Raviji has taken the pains to study lot the scattered information relating to this from several kalari masters and co-ordinate them with the yogic sciences. The result is the Khallori yoga system initiated and perfected by Raviji.
